The following video is so gross to watch, I simply don’t know what to say. The cynicism is bottomless:
When a national party can shield its candidates from interviews and press conferences, how is democracy to function properly?
How are people to make a rational judgment about a candidate who they only know via meticulously scripted venues?
Why not just roll a robot onto the stage?
I only hope that the electorate this year does not reward this kind of behavior.
Palin’s isolation from the press, and tight scripting, sets an outrageous precedent.
